Take A Virtual Trip Through The Amphipolis Tomb In Its Original State

Discovered only three years ago, the Amphipolis Tomb is the largest burial monument ever discovered in Greece. A new 3D representation of the tomb reveals just how gorgeous this ancient structure really was.


The video, which was put together by AncientAthens3D using data published by the Greek Ministry of Culture, was created "in order to present the monuments and buildings of Athens from the Mycenaean period (1600 BCE) to the Early Modern period (~AD 1800), through 3D representations."

Also known as Kasta Tomb, it's not known who was buried there. The remains of five people were discovered within a corresponding tomb back in November 2014, including an eldery woman, a newborn child, a cremated corspse, and two middle-aged men. Some archaeologists suspect the remains may have had something to do with Alexander the Great's family, or possibly a general.

Amphipolis, huh? Better keep an eye out for chakrams. (Well, just the one, but it ricochets a lot!)
